Abstract:Dry grinding is one of the most favourable processes from an economical as well as an ecological point of view. However, it is rather difficult to achieve this goal due to the nature of the grinding process. A common method for reducing and eliminating the use of metalworking fluid is to reduce any harmful heat generation observed in the process. Any change in the grinding parameters such as depth of cut, feed rate, or grinding speed, or the characteristics of the grinding wheel such as grit size, bonding, and porosity, can have a great influence on heat generation. This paper presents some of the very good results of the systematic research works that were done to reduce heat generation by special conditioning using a single-point diamond dressing tool based on the new innovative concept.
